Thx guys. I really like how the pics came out.
Ron, mine has the base 18"s. Also, not that it was slouchy without it, but I wish I had the PASM as I'm sure its sport mode would be helpful on the track.

"Fantastic.... must have been a great time"

Yes. Don't know what this says about my life, but it was the most fun I've had since I can remember.

Grizzly, that pretty much sums up how both days went. In the rain, the Box was unbeatable (ok, in my Green runs), especially in the curves. On dry road, there was one 996 TT that would pull away from me on the straight but I would be right back on its a** after a couple of curves. The flaggers would see that and would flag him to let me pass on the straight after which I was gone. And I'm not even that good of a driver (my first DE). Imagine what an expert could do with it! My instructor couldn't stop saying how good the Box was.

Most fascinating and exciting was to see how you gain on someone who's not doing the "line" correctly in the complicated sections -- or you're doing it more correctly then them. The distance just disappears.

And skill is SO important. My instructor was driving his no-PSM 230hp '88 911 in the Red group. He took me for a run in his car (I think with the Yellows, because of rules) and he was so much faster than I could ever be with my 280hp Box with PSM. There's SO much more beyond raw horse power and events like this make that crystal clear. It's really like chess on wheels.

Thx FIG. About the watermark... I had a chance to view some of the pics on a laptop at the event and I made a deal with the photographer to purchase all hi-res pics with my car in them (without a watermark, of course). The CD should be coming in the mail any day now. I like his business model and he deserves to make a living especially given how good the pics are. I would never be able to make pics like that with my piddly digital camera.
